Subject Re: Webapps loading order
Date Mon, 22 Jan 2007 15:55:35 GMT
Ok, if it ain't multithread then there must be some kind of order?
I mean is it a random function? Or something like that?
Always defining contexts on server.xml, will that make them load in the
order provided in the file?

Thanks in advance
